Who doesn’t remember the old hookey board hanging on the verandah or nailed to the wall of the backyard dunny?
At last, a real set of hookey Grandpa would be proud of. Unlike modern cheapies that are much smaller and made from chipboard, our 2015 design turns back the clock and delivers a real full sized board crafted from hardwood. Finska’s hookey is beautifully finished in high gloss varnish and comes with 13 hooks and 6 silicon rings in traditional red or black.
A hookey board permanently in place will bring years of adhoc fun for all. You’ll be surprised what the kids and their friends will spontaneously do when a hookey board is just hanging there waiting to be played! So good to see them off their i-gadgets developing real hand-eye coordination. But don’t think hookey is just for kids. Kids of the grown up variety find this iconic Australian game hard to resist too and its a simple way to have some old fashioned fun over a a few drinks at your next barbecue or party.
Standard rules are a race to a hundred and one (great for the kids’ maths) but variations like “round the clock” and “hookey cricket” are also classic variations of this versatile family game.
Comes packaged with rule card, 340 x 20mm hardwood board, 13 hooks and six 70mm silicon rings in red or black.
